This paper deals with the diffraction of SH-waves by a finite Griffith crack located on a symmetric surface of an infinite transversely orthotropic medium. The Fourier transform technique  has been used to reduce the elastodynamic problem to the solution of a set of integral equations. These integral equations have been solved by using the finite Hilbert transform technique and Cook's result . The stress intensity factor has been derived for low frequency vibration.
